This web mapping application was developed in cooperation between the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and intended for use as a visual aid to better understand where source water protection areas are located throughout Minnesota. The web map provides basic information to the general public of where their drinking water supply comes from, and probability to which it may be impacted by potential contamination sources.
(Note: County Nitrate Maps are no longer available within the web map in this new version. Learn more about County Nitrate Maps.)
